have you heard of tyranny? do you know who Joseph Stalin is? How about Hitler? do some research on your history, theres more reasons to own weapons other then protecting yourself from another person. again act like its impossible, surely the jews thought in 1938 when their right to firearms were taking away that, its ok, the govt. won't do anything to us that would harm us...6 million dead jews later...get the picture? america is free because of the 2nd amendment ... take away the guns of every american today , and see the real power of the govt. tomorrow. you will have no rights, sort of what is already happening quietly , but it would get worse, and you will have nothing you can do..just sit there and take it..
